Southern Spring

Southern Spring

Spring is in full bloom here in the South.  The days are getting warmer + longer, the horses are shedding like crazy, the thunderstorms are more often, and the mosquitoes are getting larger {ugh}.  However, I love this time of year.  There are wildflowers everywhere, my sister and I planted a teeny garden, and horse [...]

Horse show season has kicked off to a great start!  We took on the EXCA State Championship in Gaffney, SC recently.  Last year was the first time we had been to this beautiful town.  It never disappoints with it's rolling hills and friendly folks.  Green River Farms was hosting an Extreme Cowboy Association Race.  We love these [...]

Harvest In The Storm

I'd been watching Mr. Hyman plant his sweet potatoes and harvest them over the past few month as I'd pull out of my parents driveway to head home. There's a hurricane passing our way this weekend.  We haven't gotten a bad storm like this in a long time in this small town.  Our first cold [...]

Weekend Warrior

Y'all...I live for the weekends.  Whoever thought of working 8-10 hour days/4-5 days a week, boo you.  I count down to Friday every week.  I look forward to spending time with my husband, our pup and my family!  It doesn't matter if we're hanging around the barn, at a horse show, taking my grandparents to [...]
